  1. I gotta say this and it may not be popular but I reckon we should give Gharaman a break ,she’s obviously mentally unstable and has extremely serious health concerns .
    She has never been the loud mouthed nasty shitbag like some of her tyrant fellow Green Party MPs in fact I’ve always seen her as a scared little woman who never came to terms with her totally unwarranted rise to near the top of the bland untalented hierarchy of NZ politics.
    Jacinda Ardern,Willie Jackson, Robbo, Hipkins,3 pies,etc etc and most of the Greens and ti pati Natives are where our contempt should remain at 100% and I’m hoping our contempt level for NZ 1st and the National party is given no reason to begin rising in 2024 or we truly will be FCUKED.

    • Morning Rev. Sorry but I can’t agree with you on this one (the downtick isn’t mine BTW), But GG has a track record of lies and deceit.

      She plays on being a refugee when in fact her family paid for a holiday and jumped ship as they passed through NZ on their way to the destination (Fiji I think, but can’t remember). She was an entitled country-shopper.

      She plays on the childhood trauma of growing up being bombed, when any active warfare was hundreds of miles from where she lived.

      She plays on being a human rights lawyer when in fact she was acting in defense of a man found guilty of inciting genecide.

      She insults our parliament by wearing pro-palestinian garb in the house, and accusing Israel of genocide, which is pretty disingenuous considering her past.

      I reject the claim that she’s mentally unstable, and even if true, it’s a disgusting smear on all the good people with mental health issues who don’t find it necessary to go round stealing from others.

      I hope she gets convicted.

    • I gotta say this and it may not be popular but I reckon we should give Gharaman a break ,she’s obviously mentally unstable and has extremely serious health concerns.

      Did it ever occur to you that shoplifting and living a life of deception is the cause of her mental issues?

      Being a rabid socialist and/or climate change advocate / [put a favourite cause here] causes all sorts of internal conflicts as they promulgate lies. Including lying to themselves.

      Shoplifting is a conscious act of deception.

        • I might accept that excuse if she’d stolen routine items as well. That would possibly point to being generally unwell. But she didn’t as far as we know – she went for high-end gear.

          And I remain unconvinced that if she had any morals, that she’d let them go so drastically as to steal needlessly. As others have pointed out, plenty of people have REAL stress in their lives and don’t steal.

          I blame colonialism in Persia.

    • Read this revtech120 as there is a bit more than my quote.
      Then watch how GG at so many points, climbed up & onto that pedestal.

      Holyhekatuiteka @2ETEKA
      … This is a speech Golriz gave to an Auckland vigil just 4 days after the despicable Mosque attack. …
      ….. She also says the attack is because of the New Zealand culture, knowing full well the perpetrator was a recent immigrant with no connection to NZ. …..

      GG herself, through the years, has made the case that she is a special person, & deserves to be on a pedestal.

      Just as mendacious Ricardo Menéndez March has his peculiarities in saying “Be Gay do Crime”
      https://www.thepinknews.com/2020/12/10/ricardo-menendez-march-mp-be-gay-do-crime-maiden-speech-new-zealand-green/

      So what else, where these crimes, claims for uncompleted degrees, is all preached as to be acclaimed as the “new normal” & suppose to be supported by the plebs because of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, DEI so as to know “NO Shame”.

      • Simpleton,She never called me “yous people, colonialist, whitey, pakeha, land thief, tau iwi” or many other derogatory words that NZ born native shitbags in parliament use to refer to most European born NZrs, .
        To want to keep dumping on the totally destroyed POS is like kicking a dead dog in the hope it’s gonna somehow make you feel better, move on ,save your bile for the real criminals that caused the destruction of your country.

    • Revvy, I do not agree with your assumptions. If, as she claims, she was “Mentally Unwell” why is it that she claims she is going to “seek help” only after she has been caught stealing, on 3 occasions? To be caught, you must have carried out this illegal act on many, many occasions before hand and know on each occasion, it was wrong, but you still carried on.

      Claiming she is “Mentally Unwell” now, is a smoke screen. If she was unwell, either she or someone close to her knew she was unwell or displayed those symptoms or traits, yet neither she nor the people close to he, did anything about it.

      To claim the stress of her job caused this condition is also Bullshit. She is a List MP with no Constituents, no one to answer too, no pressure on her from the Voting Public or any Constituent, she just has a very highly paid position which she answers to no one of any consequence that requires her to be in Wellington on a few occasions at the Taxpayers expense to cast a vote.

      It does not wash with me mate. If you are going to be sanctimonious and pious on the people of New Zealand and then do the opposite go and abuse the Laws of the Land, then you deserve all the shit that falls upon you and in my opinion, she and the Greens deserve it in spades.

      • Howitis ,are you stalking me again, can I make it clear to you ,firstly I’m not a fagg so please delete my name from your little black book Howitsnot ,you’re also B/S artist as I made comments on both dwarfs Putin and Zelenskyy without taking sides.
        As for the peters dwarf I stated a week after the election that I’d stop calling him the Wellington maggot and give him a break and suitable time to keep his word ,when a suitable time span has passed if he has done what he’s always does after gaining power NOTHING he’ll be the maggot again but only if that’s ok with you Howitis , apart from that F/O and die you fool ,IMHO 🖕🖕😂

  2. Cannot agree with you revtech120, I think she deserves all she gets and as for the rest of the list you posted, I hope they get theirs just deserts as well, Our level of contempt is not diminished due to that nasty, shoplifting, grabby bitch. We hold all those others in just as much contempt as before, and our anger at them will never cease, not even after they have died I will still feel the same about them.
    In the mean time all you posters and readers have a great day and be safe.

    • And the total kicker today – evidently we pick on female politicians.
      What complete and utter codswallop
      No one is picking in Golly Grabby because she’s female.
      She nicked stuff from the shops.
      I am pissed off at knowing I pay more for stuff because there are those who think they’re entitled to a free life. Theft from supermarkets, drive-offs from fuel stations, unpaid bills with the local tradie, all get paid for by honest people who get hit with the increased overhead.
      No sympathy.

  3. Lizziep, It’s sometimes a good thing to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes IMHO Lizzie, of all the bastard tyrants in Wellington (most of who keep their disgusting agendas to themselves to avoid exposing themselves) She is probably around the 25 / 30 mark, her huge unsupportable ego and grandiose thoughts of her worth were her wall ,once that crumbled we saw what a pathetic human being she really was, leave her to disappear into oblivion with zero dignity and never be heard from again.

    • Kinda torn between both view points. whats gone is gone but like the evil skinny scagg we should never forget.
      Its takes a lot to rehabiitate someone so damaged so I guess we will either see that happen at our expense (if she is lucky enough to find someone who can fix her mind), or she will end up like so many others in this country with a life of mental illness.
      The former is to be preferred butonly time will tell.
      While she was nasty AFIK she was never brutal and that says something.

      • Shoplifting is brutal to the victims who then struggle to get justice.

        And I have no sympathy for people who claim mental illness, but smoke dope like her friend Chloe. It is well known that dope smoking affects the brain and causes all sorts of mental issues. You put shit in your body, whether it be dope or vaccines, and you pay the price.

        And I have no sympathy for people who claim mental illness, yet are happy to say they are experts in telling the rest of the world how wrong they are, and how they should be living their lives.

        “I’m defective in that I have mental issues, and therefore cannot be relied upon to be rational and make sound judgements, but you should listen to me and do what I say anyway.”

        If you are physically sick, they tell you to stay home so you don’t impact on others or infect others, especially if you are in an influential situation like a doctor.

        So why does it not occur to mental defectives that since they are defective, and therefore not of sound mind, that they should withdraw from influencing and infecting others with their unsound minds, and go sort their shit out.

    • She was very happy and photographed with absolutely dreadful people in Africa, who had committed genocide against their own people. She might not have called you honkey, white cis male, or anything else, but she is obviously a dreadful person who was standing up for Palestine in parliament and out in the open and we all know the genocide they committed against the Jews on October 7th 2022, and they still have not released all the hostages. Anyone that is supportive of them deserves derision. If her mental health ws so bad why did she remain in parliament then? She could have left and said her mental health is suffering. She was well enough to go off shore for a R&R and just got back. Sorry Revy I think she deserves all she gets.

      • Lizzie, I can’t help but agree, but my concern is that “if” she was so affected by this “Mental Illness”, why did the leadership of the Green Party not either recognise it and if they did, not come to her assistance in any way, whatsoever.

        And where were her friends and family who cared so much for her, did they not see that she was “Mentally Ill” as she claims and get some assistance for her, or convince her to stand aside from the stressful situation she claims she was in, through her employment, until she recovered. Just where were these caring people. Nowhere.

        So my question is, are we being conned to deflect from the illegal activities she carried out.

  4. A Kiwi inventor has advertised his new glucose measuring device which works without having to pierce the users skin ,unfortunately for him he employed Willie Jackson and the Tattooed cowboy hat wearing fuckwit from the Hori Pati to do the promotion ,the advertisement reads “needless glucose monitoring device”, FCUK you can’t make this shit up…LMFAO.

    • ……”any idea why this would be happening?”…….

      I reckon that, excluding the smashed windows event, that they’re either extremely unlucky or they’re bullshitting. Yet in any case let’s look at what their stay, unhappy or not has contributed to NZ. They’ve arrived probably on an overseas airline, bought a camper van to save money over renting one, stayed in public carparks because they’re too cheap to pay money at a camping ground, splurged on two minute noodles & likely shit behind shrubbery so they don’t have to empty their on board toilet. Doubtlessly they’ll hitch hike to the airport to save a taxi fare.

      What NZ tourism needs are the big spending $2000/night tourists who make the industry viable.

    • No, it is like I find this really hard to believe but I guess it must be true. In our 12 years travelling all around NZ and 2 years in Europe we have never experienced anything but friendliness and helpful people. This includes quite a lot of freedom camping away from camps ans NZMHA site.

    • rol, we have been walking our dog in the red zone for a couple of years. In the last few months lots of semi-permanent campsites have popped up, both tents and vans. A couple of them have even erected separate kitchens under awnings. There are no toilet facilities in the red zone and it’s not unusual to find faeces and toilet paper strewn about. There are no rubbish bins either.
      The red zone is not a free campground for tightass tourists. Little wonder folk get annoyed.

      Ummm, really? If it happened once, then certainly the locals may be perhaps involved, but to have the same thing occur repeatedly to ONLY them as they trave around the country would seem to be pushing things a little.

      There is an interesting phenomenon which comes immediately to mind on reading the article: That of ‘The Ugly American’; A situation described in the book of the same name where, in their arrogance and ignorance, visiting Americans show sublime insensitivity to local language, culture, and customs in whatever country they might be visiting.

      Unfortunately, the phenomenon is well documented internationally, and as a result one inevitably wonders what the REAL story might actually be…

      I doubt that it what we have been told.

    • It is new shub so it will be exaggerated bullshit.
      Is there any other way with them?
      (Ans. NO )

      Nasska at 8.17 is correct.

      I’ll bet they are typical of motorhome drivers and sightsee on the main road at 70 km/hr while holding up more and more traffic.
      So of course they will be tooted at, yelled at and even have things thrown at them. They deserve it.

      They will be loud-mouth yanks with a superiority complex.
      Guarantee they are R/soles who ran to an American owned rag (teevee3 owned by yankee Discovery) to whinge.
      Been tight ass all the way in a 40 year old van does not help. Where did they charge up?
      Did they ever pay for a proper campground.
      Sounds like they stopped where they liked and were called out, but being arrogant wont admit it.

      Tell em to fuck off.
      And as they leave, ask them who the people of Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan at all felt when their US government bombs them in their own beds at night.
      Fuck right off, yanks and never come back.

      I travelled in the US for 3 months 40 years ago. It was great and people were friendly and helpful.
      I did it again in 2000 and people were decidedly more reserved and less engaging. Things change over time.

      They were selling things to go away for a year but misrepresent it.
      Then go for the mental heath BS
      ….”It really, really sucks because we worked so hard to be here. We had to sell so many of our things, say goodbye to family and loved ones, and come all the way across the world,” she said.

      “It’s not working out, and it’s just not worth it for our mental health.” …
      —————————-
      I would expect nothing bedder form the crappy new shub.
      Maybe 30% is the truth.

    • Straight away people were honking and yelling?
      Hmm. What speed were you doing?
      What lane were you in?
      How many cars were queued up behind you?
      Did you use the passing bays?
      That’ll bring about a lot of honking and yelling from the get-go.

      A few years ago I saw words exchanged on a gas station forecourt.
      Tourists stopped for food etc and were berated by an angry motorist.
      Staff had to explain to the upset tourists that they were in three vans travelling at speeds sensible for inexperienced open road drivers, nose to tail down SH5 and had no idea they were impossible to pass. The summertime traffic behind them might have stretched to Hamilton!!
      Not hard to see how a little road rage occurred.
      Fortunately the vans followed advice to set off a few minutes apart in future.

  5. “A man and a woman had been married for more than 60 years.
    They had shared everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.
    For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover. In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife’s bedside.
    She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000. He asked her about the contents.
    “When we were to be married,” she said, “my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.”
    The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness.
    “Honey,” he said “that explains the doll, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?”
    “Oh, that?” she said. “That’s the money I made from selling the dolls.””

  6. “What we’re looking for now is how Māori can lead the entire nation. We believe mana motuhake (self-determination) will enable success for everybody and won’t be a style of leadership that will be detrimental to other people who live in New Zealand.

    Well I don’t want these Natives to “Lead the Country”, I want a duly elected democratic Government, to “Lead the Country”.

    What the Truck Driver from Huntly and his Personal Assistant and Chief of Staff, a Man of the Cloth, the Arch Deacon don’t understand is that Luxon and the Government don’t need Maori, but Maori need Luxon and the Government.

    The sooner they get that in their heads and accept it, the better.

  7. Water restrictions in Wellington. https://www.1news.co.nz/2024/01/11/most-of-wellington-to-move-to-level-2-water-restrictions/

    Wellingtons Diversity Hires cannot focus on plumbing, they are more concerned about representation and sexual empowerment.

    I did notice a river of potable water bubbling up out of one the yellow hatches on main streets, Dixon St, creating a small pond for the homeless to frolic in. Must have been going on like that for a while. The reality is our cities are failing and people are abandoning them. Tilting at Windmills for decades has hit hard and our civilisation is diminishing.

  8. Earlier today I heard ex Green MP Gareth Hughes trying to run cover for GG saying she got terrible. “hurty” emails and texts and he said he saw them when he was sitting with her. It cannot have been while he was in Parliament because she was not an MP at the time.
    Was it at Green Party conferences ?
    I just think it is all BS and they think we are idiots.

    • The WEF plans are well advanced and well coordinated.
      We saw this with Convid.

      If Donald J Trump is not US Pres and inaugurated in one year time we know things are bad.

      Protests are local. The tyranny is internationally (globally) coordinated.

    • Wonder if Germany will do a Brexit / Trump / No Vote, and reject the installed puppet government. The strikes are building momentum. The state went too far. Another mm on the path of revolutionary rejection of the corrupt global Elite. Germany would make a fitting setting. She is ground zero and still occupied after all these year. As Patton said, We may have been fighting the wrong enemy (Germany) all along. But while we’re here (on the Soviet border), we should go after the bastards now, ’cause we’re gonna have to fight ’em eventually.

      The Soviets moved into America and have set up residence.

  9. This blog’s readers will recall that early in Dec 2023 Mark Mitchell as Minister of Police lined up the Police Commissioner in the crosshairs with a letter outlining his expectations.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2023/12/police-minister-mark-mitchell-meets-with-commissioner-andrew-coster-publishes-letter-to-set-out-expectations.html

    On BFD today this comment suggests what may have been behind the rark up:

    …….” Mark Mitchell’s letter of expectations to Commissioner Coster seemed a little odd at the time. It makes more sense if one assumes that Mitchell suspected that a complaint had been made against an MP and buried. It is immaterial whether Mitchell knew the identity of the MP or the nature of the complaint – the fact Mitchell as Police Minister wasn’t informed is enough for Coster to be given the DCM. A clever play from Mitchell if true.

    There is enough evidence of lies and obfuscation on the part of the former government and the police that a wide ranging investigation is justified. Depending on what is uncovered there could be a lot of careers come to an abrupt end in parliament, the police, and the wider public service.”……..

  10. CHINA’S POPULATION FALLS
    Meanwhile, China’s population is declining faster now, as deaths rise above norms. The number of people in the world’s second-largest economy fell for a second year to 1.41 billion in 2023. The Chinese population started shrinking in 2022 for the first time since 1961.

  11. I just noticed the Hamilton temperature.. except that weather underground has it at 25. There are a few at 26, but most are 25 or below. Now these are not forecasts or models but actual weather stations that report to the website.

    https://www.wunderground.com/wundermap?lat=-37.788&lon=175.282&zoom=8&radar=1&wxstn=0

    Where, oh where dear Editor, do you get your reading….?

    Since posting this the temperature has “dropped” to 25.1 . Either thats a cache issue or of the temp keeps dropping at that rate, it will be snowing shortly…
